Microbide High Level Disinfectant (HLD) impacts on Superbug Hospital Acquired Infection.
HLD liquid chemical sterilants are used to sterilise invasive medical diagnostic devices, operating theatre and dental utensils between patient use. Unclean medical devices are a major source of superbug HAIs (Hospital Acquired Infection).
Approx. 1.7 million HAIs occur in U.S. hospitals each year, resulting in ~100,000 deaths and an estimated $20 billion in healthcare costs.
Microbide products are more effective, easy-to-use,
PH-neutral with longer shelf life and greater safety.
Unlike other currently applied disinfectants, our agents remain highly potent, even in the presence of high blood load unlike chlorine. The micellised aldehydes have outperformed non-complexed market leaders in head-to-head studies of hospital high level disinfectants.
The true advantage is the environmentally friendly nature of the solution. The benchmark Microbide-G product is entirely biodegradable – after use it breaks down into CO2 and water without affecting larger organisms, such as fish and plants.
